Cinemax 2018 Original Programming Lineup Announced

Cinemax 2018 original programming lineup announced

Cinemax has an explosive lineup set for Friday nights in 2018, with a varied slate of dynamic, action-packed original programming highlighted by new and returning series.

“We are very excited to present a slate that moves Cinemax back in the direction of fun, often adrenalized, and always entertaining series,” says Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming. “We have strategically seized upon co-production opportunities that allow us to maximize the impact and production value of these shows for our viewers.”

The Cinemax 2018 shows include (in chronological order):

STRIKE BACK (debuting February 2) returns for a ten-episode fifth season of high-intensity action, introducing new members of Section 20. Disavowed and disbanded, the unit is restored to track down a notorious terrorist after a brutal prison break. Tasked with covert military intelligence and high-risk operations, the resurrected Section 20 embarks on a lethal manhunt that will uncover a vast web of interconnected criminal activity. As the team journeys across the Middle East and Europe, it uncovers a deadly conspiracy that threatens to change the face of modern warfare forever. Warren Brown (Luther, The Dark Knight Rises), Daniel MacPherson (Infini), Roxanne McKee (HBO’s Game of Thrones, Crossfire) and Alin Sumarwata (Burning Man) star. MJ Bassett returns to executive produce and direct.

RELLIK (April 13), an original six-part thriller, stars Richard Dormer (HBO’s Game Of Thrones) as Gabriel, an obsessive and disfigured UK police detective, and Jodi Balfour (Cinemax’s Quarry) as Elaine, his bright and intense partner. Focusing on a serial killer, the story begins with the capture of the suspect and moves backwards in time to the crime itself. Obsessed with his hunt for the killer, Gabriel’s story becomes intrinsically bound to that of his suspect, asking the question, “What are the experiences that forge the people we all become?” Four episodes are directed by Sam Miller, and two by Hans Herbots.

C.B. STRIKE (June) is a dramatic series based on the best-selling crime novels written by Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. Starring Tom Burke (Only God Forgives), the story centers on Strike, a war veteran turned private detective, operating out of a tiny office in London’s Denmark Street. Although wounded both physically and psychologically, Strike’s unique insight and his background as a military police investigator prove crucial in solving three complex cases that have baffled the police. The series launches with three one-hour episodes based on the first book in the trilogy, “The Cuckoo’s Calling” (directed by Michael Keillor), followed by adaptations of the remaining two books, “The Silkworm” (directed by Kieron Hawkes) and “Career of Evil” (directed by Charles Sturridge), both of which will consist of two one-hour episodes.

OUTCAST (July) continues the suspenseful mystery of what lies behind the town of Rome’s supernatural manifestations in the second season of the Skybound/Image comic title by Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta. Patrick Fugit (Gone Girl, HBO’s Cinema Verité) stars as Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life. Now, with the help of Reverend Anderson, played by Philip Glenister (Kingdom of Heaven), a preacher who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil, Kyle struggles to protect those he holds most dear, now that otherworldly threats prove greater than anticipated. His struggle will grow into a fight for all of his hometown, as he discovers the haunting secrets of his own past.

Justice League Runtime, Rating and Sequel Talk

 

Justice League runtime, rating and sequel talk

Manabyte has confirmed that the Justice League runtime is 121 minutes, or two hours and one minute, which makes it the shortest of the DC Extended Universe films so far. Man of Steel was 143 minutes long, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came in at 151 minutes, Suicide Squad with 123 minutes, and Wonder Woman was 141 minutes long. The Warner Bros. release has also received a PG-13 rating for “sequences of sci-fi violence and action,” which is not unusual for this type of film.

In related news, Total Film (via Cosmic Book News) spoke to J.K. Simmons, who plays Commissioner Gordon in Justice League and said a script for the sequel is in the works. “Well, Commissioner Gordon wears a trench coat in every scene, so I don’t know that the ‘pumped up’ part is going to be all that evident, especially when you’re standing next to Batman! But this is the first Justice League movie – we hope – of a few. They’re working on scripts for The Batman and for the next Justice League movie. It introduces my incarnation of Commissioner Gordon. I don’t have a lot to do. I feel like I just dipped my toe in the water of who Commissioner Gordon will be.”

Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.

Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder (Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeMan of Steel), the screenplay is by Joss Whedon and Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio. Whedon directed the additional photography for the sequel and is overseeing the completion of its post production following Snyder’s family tragedy. Justice League is produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns. The executive producers are Jim Rowe, Wesley Coller, Curt Kanemoto, Chris Terrio and Ben Affleck.

Justice League opens in theaters on November 17.
